Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #15: More DC progress pics...

I’ve got the drops for the Band Saw, Drill Press, Lathe, and one of the overhead drops, this one for the workbench, all done and glued up. The drop for the lathe keeps, well drooping, which I halfway expected. I avoided that with the band saw and drill press drops by supporting the Wyes with strap. I am not sure how to do that with the 2 45 degree elbows. I’ll figure it out though… All in all it is looking really good. I am a little further behind than I had expected, but...

I have a spalted cherry slab that is a very beautiful piece of wood, but I am not sure what to do with it. The slab is about 4 feet high- 1 inch thick. Width at the bottom is about 14 inches and it tapers to about 6 inches (maybe less) at the top. I am hoping you guys could provide some suggestions- What to do with the slab? The pictures aren’t great, and I will try to get some new ones tomorrow in the daylight. (It was getting dark when I took these ones. THANKS!

Wood, wood quiz and some bla, bla, bla

10-28-2010 10:07 PM by stefang | 15 comments »

Hi fellow LJer’s, I bought some wood today. I thought it might be interesting (for me at least) to show you what $200 (Nkr.1,400) buys you here in Norway. I wonder how that compares to what can be purchased for the same amount in the U.S.A. or the equivalent in Canadian dollars? As you can see, I also bought a 4 pk of Rockler Bench Cookies. ““ The red bits are about 9,85 bdft of Mahogany, The long white piece is 0,44 bdft. of Sycamore, and lastly 1,77 bdft. block of my...

mahogany bed

I’m getting closer to the finish but I just noticed my grain direction is heading in different ways with the foot and head board. Also the top is a bit wobbly I may have to add more supports to it

Simple bandsaw circle jig

10-28-2010 09:14 PM by Neightdogg | 2 comments »

Whether you have cut your turning blank with a chainsaw or purchased it online, there is a good chance you are working with a square block. There is nothing I hate more, while turning, than those square corners of a large blank picking up speed and jarring me with every rotation into my cutting tool. Fortunately cutting those square turning blanks into rounds couldn’t be much easier, as long as you have a nice band saw and a few minutes to make a jig. In this blog I will demonstrate t...

Owning your own business (Post #7) Why do some people think you can read their mind?

10-28-2010 06:55 PM by nate22 | 1 comment »

Good afternoon Lumberjocks. It has been busy in the shop in the last couple of weeks. The one customer I made the bed for was happy with his and really liked it. Then I had another customer that wanted me to make a trundle bed and dresser for him which I said I could do. Well I got them all done and he comes and picks them up and tells me that he wanted a twin bed with it. So needless to say he didn’t buy the trundle bed and dresser. Which didn’t make me upset I just would o...

Refinishing Jobs ? I dread.

10-28-2010 06:06 PM by Doug Scott | 12 comments »

I don’t mind some of the things I refinish . But this is the one that I wish that I would have turned down.I will post this one my projects , so check that out if you desire. It’s a french door , with 15 panels of glass , the fun about this is cleaning the old paint out from the trim around each pain of glass and then getting it all sanded, but not only do you or should I say ( I ) have 15 panels but I have (TWO SIDES ) that means 30 panels . It was painted with two layers of pa...
